Today we fly over from Australia to Madagascar!
Our guide is the lovely Helen Nagle-Smith, who trained and qualified as a clinical aromatherapist in the UK at the Institute for Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy and in 2006. Helen runs her practice Aromatherapy with Helen, teaches and writes aromatherapy CPD courses and is the author of Working with unusual oils – an aromatic journey with lesser known essential oils.
Saro (Cinnamosma fragrans Baill.) – native to Madagascar and belongs to the family Canellaceae, and steam distilled from the leaves of the plant – is one of those wonderful essential oils that deserves to be known better. For many of us in the Northern hemisphere now is the perfect time of the year to embrace Saro, a potent essential oil that can bolster our immune system, support our respiratory system and take care of our body in numerous ways.
Get your copy of AROMATIKA Magazine, read this fascinating article, and feel free to share your valuable feedbacks and comments! As much as Helen does, we would all love to hear your experiences of working with Saro or other unusual oils that you did or didn’t train with.
